ECF & AB Co-ordinator
I started working for The Golden Thread TSH in April 2022.
I currently work as Appropriate Body and Early Career Framework Coordinator which involves reviewing ECT assessments, ensuring ECTs are receiving their statutory entitlements, answering ECT and Induction Tutors queries and assisting with support plans for ECTs. I have also delivered the Early Career Framework training to ECTs and Mentors as well as being a mentor myself. Alongside this I am a classroom teacher.
My teaching career started 12 years ago as a secondary science teacher in outer London. I held different departmental responsibilities and oversaw lots of curriculum change from KS3-KS5, this is something I have always enjoyed working on. Subsequently, I taught abroad in an all-through school teaching both primary and secondary Science before returning to the UK and obtaining a Head of Year role for KS4 year groups.
I relocated to Staffordshire in 2019 and started working at Painsley Catholic College as a Science SLE supporting Heads of Science working in nearby schools. Throughout my career I have been lucky to be involved in teacher development; being a mentor for trainee and NQT/ECTs and delivering training to them – it’s lovely to see new teachers flourish!
